The Compassion Torch moves from Stanford CCARE to UC Berkeley Greater Good Science Center (GGSC). GGSC research center is devoted to the scientific understanding of individual happiness, compassion, strong social bonding, and altruistic behavior. The center was started in 2001 and serves to conduct research, and to translate and disseminate research for the general public.

The Greater Good Science Center studies the psychology, sociology, and neuroscience of well-being, and teaches skills that foster a thriving, resilient, and compassionate society.  The center aims to promote well-being in society as a whole.


The GGSC is a partner with Louie Schwartzberg and Oprah Winfrey and the Gratitude Revealed initiative. Here is a video on the topic of Gratitude by Nipun Mehta recorded at the GGSC.
